The Mission

The Johnston Mission is located in an idyllic clearing, and everything seems peaceful.

However on their way are two threats - a band of Askari brigands and a pack of Raptors

The Peaceful Mission

The Askari brigands exit the clearing, heading straight for the creatures; but the Raptors close quickly

Captain Lewis, along with his sister and her husband Reverend Johnston race for the car. However in the scramble to get into the car Lewis discharges his pistol and hits his brother-in-law (only the man's sturdy cap saves him from a serious wound). Lewis bundles him into the car to recover from his concussion

The race for the car

Mrs Johnston storms off towards the house while Lewis is distracted - she spots an Askari running hell-for-leather away from the beasts

Tehpoe is finally slain by one of the surviving Raptors

racing after her, her attempts to defend herself result in a lost shotgun and she shrieks in terror to run blindly into the jungle

The badly wounded Achillobator, having eaten the Askari on the rooftop, struggles to descend until Lewis' car stalls just beside the house

The Reverend Johnston, striding purposefully to kill a Raptor is blindsided by the wounded Achillobator

Taking cover behind some boxes Lewis and Johnston fend off the remaining two beasts, who slink off into the jungle

Going for cover

But what will happen to Mrs. Johnston, alone in the jungle and without anything to defend herself with?


  1. Brilliant! What rules were you using?

  2. Thanks Stuart - used my own homegrown rules "Perilous Trail". Hopefully I'll be able to polish them up and publish them here soon

  3. And the main thing was - the right man lost.

  4. Holy s...t! Fantastic game and setup.
